Best Answer

probably the Detroit Tigers dontrelle willis raking in about making 7 mil. this year with a major league era over 10 and currently playing for single A Lakeland

But, I'd probably say that Kei Igawa of the Yankees is the highest paid, cumulatively, in the history of the game. Igawa made most of his $20m salary while playing minor league ball.
